Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends. This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better. Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.
Together we can do this!
Hello friends!! How did your week go? Last week, I made some decisions. Some of them were harder to decide but I’m standing firm with them for now.
First Decision – the plasma clinic. Lately I can’t get my pulse under 100. I have an accelerated heart beat to begin with and every time I go to the clinic it’s a stressful situation to get that number down. And with the other excitement happening here at the Hotel Thompson at the end of the month, I just know that the number is not going down anytime soon. Therefore, I am halting my donations for now. I’m proud in the fact that I have made 38 plasma donations and I’m hoping that has touched people in need. Later once I can get my pulse rate down, I may revisit the plasma clinic. But for now, I feel relieved for taking a break.
Second Decision – I *have* to do better with this way of eating. I’ve been playing with it for months now and I keep making excuses. It’s always going to be this or that with mountains and valleys to overcome. I need to start learning how to let go of stress and handle it better. So, deep breaths, today is a new day. I’m going to really, really try to do better – especially in the next couple of weeks. Then our guests arrive and I will probably take that week off and then start afresh again.
Sometimes we have to step back and reevaluate ourselves and this has been one of those times. I’ve noticed that I’ve had to much on my plate for a while and I kept thinking I could handle it all. Guess what. I’m not Super Woman… I wish I had her body though – LOL. But as women in general, I think we all think we can handle everything. But after a while, everything catches up with you. So I am making a commitment to be better to myself. I need to take time for me and listen to my body before it starts shutting down.
So what about you my friends. Ever felt this way? I would love to hear about it ((HUGS)) ♥
